  1. Quality St Tin

    Label personalisation is becoming more and more important and with the world evolving into the "pick & mix" / "on-demand" way of shopping consumers are after a product that's unique to them. 

    Gone are the days where you would go to the shop, buy your tub of Quality Street and by the end of the tub you'd have the chocolates left that no one likes. Now you can choose only the flavours you like and also get your tub personalised with your or a family members name. This changes that tub from just a box of chocolates to a personal gift.

    This is the furture of product personalisation and producing that individual label on demand is a large part of that. Check out the case study from Afinia below and see what we mean.

  2. Business Showcase Bristol Logo

    Business Showcase South West - 10th Oct 2018

    We will be exhibiting at the Business Showcase South West on the 10th October. If coming to meet us and collecting your peronalised jar of Celebrations is not enough reason to attend then there are free seminars throughout the day given by industry experts on topics such as building a social media strategy and video marketing. You can also get a free professional head shot, if your Linked In page could use an update.

    It's a really well organised event which is easy to get to and has plenty of parking.

  3. The global trend in label converting is moving away from traditional mass production towards multiple version, personalisation, with variable data for tractability which ultimately resulting in shorter run sizes. Buyers are also looking for ever shorter lead times.

     - Do you have a high proportion of print runs then come in under 3000 linear meters?

     - Could you gain new opportunities if you had the ability to personalise or run variable field data?

     - Are your customers asking for jobs to be produced in under 8 hours?

     - Could you make better use of your current equipment if you added a digital label press to your print room?

     If any of the above statements are true, then considering a digital label press could be an easily justifiable investment. 

    Digital inkjet technology is simple to operate, offers a print quality comparable to that of UV flexo but without the requirement for plates, long set up time or waste.

    HD Labels has full print, cutting and finishing systems available from £17.50 per day.
